  • Information


'A highly original thinker' - New York Times David Graeber (1961-2020) was an American anthropologist and anarchist activist who left us with new ways to understand humankind.

His writings picked apart political power and social hierarchy to reveal what makes human society tick. As If Already Free collects his most important insights in one book, showing how his writing resonates today for activists looking to shake things up, and explaining how his powerful and accessible ideas can be applied to a wide range of topics, from birth to banking. In today's neoliberal world, we can turn to Graeber's legacy to provide a way for us to understand what went wrong, and how to fix it.

This collection is both an introduction to his life and works, a guide to his key ideas, and an inspiring example of how anthropologists are continuing to use his work today.
